60D: 30mm or 50mm?

Novice here. Just bought a 60D and decided on getting a prime lens as my first lens but can't decide between 30mm or 50mm. I've done plenty research but I've been reading that because of 1.6 crop factor a 50mm is in essence an 80mm. Is this true? I don't understand how the crop factor works or even if it's a good thing there is a crop factor. That being said because of the crop factor should I get a 30mm?
